1. Samuel Pepys is more famous today than he was during his own lifetime.
NOT GIVEN,there is not comparing in the paragraph.

2. Pepys kept a diary for purely business reasons.
FALSE,"beyond mere business "as it says.

1.NG
We know that Pepys is well-known today,but
we don't know that he was famous during his own lifetime is not mentioned in the passage.
2.F
the answer is false because the passage says the opposite to what the question says. beyond mere business transaction notation, into the realm of the personal.

Hi there,

1. False (as there is no comparison if he is famous today or in the past)

2. False (as it says 'beyond mere business transaction')

1, not given
There is no information about whether he was famous or not during his own lifetime, so no comparison can be made.
2, false
In the last sentence, there is exactly given information that he took diary not only on business, but also on his personal life.

Hi Simon,

What is the answer?

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. NOT GIVEN

We don't know how famous he was in his own lifetime, so we can't compare.

2. FALSE

The opposite is true - he used his diary for MORE than just business. The key word is "beyond" (more than).

Not given
Although his diary was published after his death and he then became well known But this doesn't prove that he was not famous or less famous in his lifetime .

False
Becoz he used the diary" beyond " business .....

first answer is true ,second answer is fales

Thanks Simon. Very good exercise.

My answers:
1.NG.The extract only says Samuel Pepys is well-known today, not say than his own lifetime.

hi sir
1. false
2. not given

sir, in this passage, how is the statement false and not notgiven
Passage-smoking, it is believed, is responsible for 30% of all deaths from cancer and clearly represents the most important preventable cause of cancer in countries like the United States today.
Question:30% of deaths in the United states are caused by smoking related diseases.

1.TRUE 2.FALSE

1. Not Given - There is no comparison or information that he is famous today than before. The text only mentioned that "Samuel Peyps is well-known today.
2. False - The statement contradicts the statement in the text. The text says ..."he took the diary beyond mere business transaction notation, into the realm of the personal." However, the question says "Pepys kept a diary for PURELY business reasons."

Hello everyone,
Can anyone help me with this question? I would really appreciate it much.Is it TRUE, FALSE or NOT GIVEN?

Text: As a newcomer, it is often a good idea to talk to an experienced employment counsellor to ensure that your approach to job seeking is appropriate , particularly if you are having difficulty getting an interview.

Question: Some employment counsellors are especially trained to deal with new residents.

My initial answer is TRUE because "employment counsellors are especially trained" is similar to "experienced employment counsellor", and " new residents" is similar to " newcomers". However, there is " some" in the question, but not mentioned in the text.So, maybe the answer is " NOT GIVEN". Is "some" a distractor or a qualifier? Please help me. Thanks.

NOT GIVEN. It does not specifically mention they are trained to deal with NEW RESIDENTS.
